New Links Conversion Theft

I was checking out some of the Blogs I follow and came across a picture of a very awesome mini. I thought what army is that from?!? Found out it was from the game Warmachine...interesting. Followed the game back to its creators, Privateer Press, and found out they have several very cool Steam Punk games. How this applies to 40k? Glad you asked, simply put minis from other games sometimes give you that one figure you have been searching for to make an awesome HQ or sergeant or whatever. Point being I am naming the link section Other Games, Conversion Theft. I will be adding more links as I find them. Also if anyone knows of a worthwhile link/game to rob minis from send it to me or post it in the comments, thanks!

Ten years after the death of Grandfather Nurgle's Daemon Retribution is to be had...
The latest installment in the video game series Dawn of War is coming March 1, 2011! The next stand alone expansion is known as Dawn of War II: Retribution. I cannot wait to get my hands on it so I am pre-ordering it on Steam. With this I also get a choice of extra equipment for one of five races: Space Marines, Chaos Marines, Eldar, Imperial Guard, and only on Steam Orks!

Now I love the Orks and used to have a 2500 point, approxiamtly, army of them. They are a galaxy wide annoyance, and who doesn't love a good Waaaaagh every now and then. So, I am very excitied to have a campaign version of them in this expansion. The pirate hat is great piece of war-gear too, since any fan of 40k knows that the Orks are comic relief for this galaxy. Red makes it go faster! Although do not underestimate them because in strength you will not find them lacking.

In the links you will find a link to the Dawn of War II website. It has not been fully updated yet to contain much of a preview to Retribution, but if you watch the video you get a small teaser. Check Dawn of War II: Retribution out on Steam too. You will find screenshots and a summary of the game. In short the single player campaign is now like Dawn of War: Soulstorm where you can play any of the six races. This game will only include Tyranids, Space Marines (Blood Ravens), Chaos Marines, Imperial Guard, Eldar, and Orks. Leaving room for a fourth expansion if THQ, Relic, and Games Workshop want to go that route. I believe this is coming out because of the game's success in the past and Space Marine being a console system only first didn't do that well. Another reason Space Marine will be bridged over to PC this coming Summer.
Now, as far as my dilemma of which race to pre-order for, I am stuck between the Dark Gods of Chaos and Orks. Any suggestions would be great. REMEMBER there is only 1 month, 3 weeks, 3 days and 5 hours before the release so get ready for RETRIBUTION all ye sinners!

Nothing much happening, been doing very little painting. Found that really cool Picasa showcase, see earlier posts, and has inspired me to try harder to individualize my models. But this weekend is the weekend that I go over to Faytes new home and paint with him and hopefully finally finish my dreadnought and captain. I am doubtful, but I will try too. Plus his latest discovery of a very good looking ancient brass style is something I aim to master for my dreadnought this weekend. This year is going to be tough for my gaming world, but I am hoping to finish my tanks for the Blood Angels. Read my 21 Black Library books I have purchased, and beat the video games as well. All this while keeping my job, maintaining school grades and just keeping normal life in order. To those who see this blog please follow if you are a Warhammer 40k fan. I will have Fayte post his models in Picasa to have in the showcase section. I will begin to write reviews for the Black Library books I have read. And in short order I will review the Ultramarines movie! Yes I own and have viewed once, decent, but the remainder to be posted in the Reviews section. Have a good year everyone, Emperors blessing to all who believe and Warp damn the rest of you lot.
